Wake every day to mystical scenes of wispy clouds floating through dense rainforest, the air alive with the calls of exotic birds and monkeys and the air heavy with the humid scents of the jungle. To escape to somewhere as wild and beautiful as Monteverde is a dream made reality. To not make an environmental impact while you are there is reality at its very best.
The jungle paradise of Monteverde is one of the first eco-friendly towns on earth. Situated between two incredible cloud forest reserves, the Mormons who originally settled here instantly realised the fragility of the ecosystem and dedicated themselves to working in harmony with nature, rather than trying to master it. This incredible ethos has persisted and grown throughout the years so that now, a thriving tourist town exists, but it barely makes an ecological footprint.
To underline this you will visit one of the world-class coffee plantations in Monteverde, learning about their processes and how they harness nature in everything they do. When you explore the cloud forest itself, you won’t be just walking through. To get the most out of this densely packed natural wonderland you will first take to the canopies, wandering through the treetops on specially constructed walkways. Then, after a short break, you will head back into the jungle at night, on a special guided tour to witness how the cloud forest comes alive after dark.
Add to this, spectacular hand-picked accommodation and a knowledgeable friendly guide to bring Monteverde alive and you have the perfect escape to wild Costa Rica.
